badident <reply> Unfortunately, your IRC client has been configured with an ident containing an objectionable word. We don't allow such into our main channels as it offends a lot of people. Your ident is not your nickname. Once you've changed your ident, please disconnect from Libera and reconnect. You will then automatically be let back into the channel you tried to join.
